Hi


Title : Versus
Author : Hlovate 
Pages : 432
Price : RM 19.00
Publisher : Jemari Seni Publishing 

Last my book review was January, reviewing Plain Jane. As for me,  it's quite hard to do book review unless you do understand that book very well,  inside and outside, explication and implication of the book. Like Fatina.

Versus is the five of the books by Hlovate, a mysterious Malaysian writer. Versus follows Minn Edina and Ashraff Omar, ( stands for Minn and AO ) life,  about an ex-skater and a skater and basketball player. Bought this book at Popular bookstore. Versus means we fight to be better than before and be more better than better, fight with old of us,  fight with our passion to be better.

Minn Edina met AO when her lecture, Mr.  Fernando wants she to help one of his student which is AO who is having a problem with his subject,  Business Management. At the first moment, both of them aren't going very well because Minn don't like AO bad attitude like,  come late to the first meeting because he was playing basketball and concealing from her.
All the things comes clean until AO and Minn bump into Minn ex-clans of Wrath, Rage, Cid, Fudge, and TJ at Ampang Point and AO discovered that Minn Edina was Ed'Sassin of Wrath, a sassy girl that he was adore. He's still adore her.

AO changes and trying to know what that makes Minn to changed from Ed'Sassin to Minn Edina. And he's trying to change himself. And that's makes Minn curious about what happened to him, that's force him to forthright. Later,  AO fly to Sydney to continue his degree,  said he was doing twinning program of degree. Then,  he back  after done with his degree and changed hundred percent and Minn felt curious again when it comes to Jasmin, an unknown girl who knows AO and called AO as a Ashraff.  Not AO as Minn called him. Which Minn have to stay together with her when joined a program at Cerakah for a summer programme for Australia-New Zealand students for the summer break and she described AO changes for good and not suitable with her and MIA after the program, leaving AO alone. And making friend with Jasmin then. Minn Edina reminding me of Iffi Liyana from Manisnya Cinta di Cappadocia,  leaving her man without an explanation or without listening to his explanation. It's totally suck.

Minn Edina then continue her Master in Commerce at Macquarie Uni and at the same time,  AO continues his Master to and they bump with each other, later Minn got spiked which is forced AO to proposed and married with her at the same time take care her with his whole life.
 As for me,  it's kinda scary when you're studying oversea and got spiked when you're alone without your family although somebody else might help you,  but I'm pretty sure still need my family no matter what.

Quotes of the Versus

...bukan mudah untuk berubah dari tanpa arah ke sejadah, dari tepi jalanan ke sujud menghadap Tuhan...

It's dangerous to stereotype, you know. Rule number one in behavioral science is to never assume.

If you forget of what you were,  you'd never be grateful of what you are. Ingat tu.  Perlu selalu bersyukur dengan what you're now,  and nonetheless before. Kadang-kadang benda tu kita lupa.

Ya Allah, I seek of you to grant me the best of my lady and the best of her qualities. Ya Allah,  I seek refuge with you to protect me against all the evils within. 

Skateboarding is not a crime. Nikah awal is not a crime. 

Now and then,  ey?
And here we are.
We used to be there,  though.
And now we're destined to be here. Together.
Ed'Sassin and AO?
Minn Edina and Ashraff Omar.
